I had a great time seeing friends and catching up with them over the first weekend of the year. Having that should be a sign of a great fun for the year ahead.
Whenever I crave for something different to eat other than the cheeseburger meal of Burger King, my choice is some good Japanese food. My go-to place for this is the Banyi Japanese dining in Temple Bar.
The other night was a blast. I was with Agatha, along with her friends at work having dinner at Tippenyaki Restaurant in Castlewoods, Rathmines, Dublin. It is a Japanese restaurant with Japanese-looking Filipino crew. It felt home there, to be honest.
Me Before You
I woke up at around 4 am to get ready for the running session. After over a number of times Michael and I planned to jog, we have finally make it happen this time.
It’s my 25th birthday!! Another year older, hoping to be a much more wiser person to deal with life ahead.
So what was my first day of my 25th year living on earth was like?
I was off-duty but i had to go to HD unit for some lunch treat with my colleagues. I share the same birthdate with Sir Mic so I didn’t have to pay that much for our treat. (It’s Sir Mic’s 28th year. Sorry i have to spill that out. Teehee.)
Sir Mic and I dropped by Shopwise to buy leche flan, soft drinks, and rice. We also went around Englis and V. Rama Ave for the viands: Kusina ni Nasing’s liempo and Sr. Pedro’s lechon manok. With the help of Sir Pugz, we also had CNT’s lechon baboy. All the while, our folks were preparing something for us.
It was a memorable birthday because I got share it with this bunch of people dear to my heart. Spending moments like this with them is a real treasure. Our start may have been rough but our journey together has polished us to shine together and unite happily.
That we get to eat together after-shift like this. 🙂 Miss you guys!

Here we are again. The trio on the go! This time we’re having some gastronomic adventure. First stop: Korean style.
This is my very first Korean dining experience. Peaches brought us to Donga Restaurant in Mabolo where they offer an unlimited serving of Korean food for P300. Not bad for a first.
With all the stresses and pressures we have in life, let us all take time to smile. Capturing those moments would even make them more special.
On the 15th day of my vacation, Dadi, Mama and I had the chance to visit again the Monastery of the Holy Eucharist popularly known as Simala Church in Barangay Lindogon, Simala, Sibonga.
It was on a Monday that we went there. We strategically chose to visit that church not on a Sunday or the 13th day of the month so we can avoid the rush of visiting devotees on these days. This is a very good advice to take if you want to experience more the solemnity of the place.
Below are some of the photos I snapped during our visit.
